Downers Grove Park District is excited to offer a full lineup of our popular summer camps in 2021! Camps will follow the latest state guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Staff to camper ratio will be 1:10 or less. Face coverings will be required when social distancing is not possible. Camps that offer field trips will focus on outdoor experiences as much as possible, but field trips are also not guaranteed based on trip availability and COVID-19 safety mitigations. Additional safety information and camp procedures will be emailed to participants prior to the start of camp.
